Dog Day Afternoon

Products, activities, and treats to drool over

crew lala!

You leave your snugglebot at home when you go to work/yoga/happy hour and make him sleep at the foot of the bed instead of on your pillow. Make up for it with neat-o activities, accessories, snacks, and more.

Bow Up
Tyler Hairy lives in the South and should dress the part. His doggie style gets more debonair with Crew LaLa bow tie collars in happy prints such as yellow madras, blue gingham, and birthday confetti. For extra-dapper dogs, check out the Paris collection (think chevron, florals, and mini dots).

A Real Treat
You eat healthy. Ruffles can do the same with pup-approved, organic Big Daddy Biscuits (made with human-grade ingredients). Or hit the Decatur Farmers Market for all-natural LowLow’s Gourmet Dog Biscuits in cheese, chicken liver, and tuna varieties.

Shot Collar
Remember when Taylor Sniffed was wearing the same neckwear as another pup at the park? Mortifying. Attend a collar-decorating class by Paco Collars at Highland Pet Supply (May 4; 10 a.m.-1 p.m. or 4-7 p.m.) to ensure it never happens again. Call 404-892-5900 or email toni@highlandpet.com to reserve a space ($125) by Friday. Fetching Tags will be there offering goods at a deep discount.

Bark Up the Right Trees
Your little beefcake is getting a little, um, beefy. Thanks to the Georgia Veterinary Medical Association and Georgia State Parks’ Pets RXercise program, you can get a “prescription” from your vet for free parking and trail hiking at all state parks — so you both can get fit in the fresh air. Or prep your slobbering sprinter for the Atlanta Dog Jog in Piedmont Park on May 4.

Mega Bites
When your pooch is surfing doggie porn (i.e., bacon pics) on his iPaw, direct him to another website he’ll drool over. PawAffairs.com is a resource for canine events, dog-friendly restaurants, parks, and gifty products.

Pupscale Living
You buy Kate Kibbleton only the finest puppy products. Visit the canine section at Star
Provisions
market to snag gear such as Harry Barker beds and covers, Found My Animal leashes and collars, Pounce canvas toys, Wagwear quilted vests, natural foods, handcrafted bowls, and more for your little princess.

Playtime
Let Bradley Pooper tag along for happy hour at the monthly Mutts ’n’ Martinis on the Living Room patio at the W Atlanta – Midtown to benefit Angels Among Us Pet Rescue (May 1, June 5, and July 10, at 6 p.m.). You’ll sip $5 Salty Dogs, while your handsome stud savors his own treats. Or hit Dog Daze at Diesel (May 19, 1-7 p.m.) for food and drink specials, canine contests, giveaways, and more to benefit Urban Pet Project.

And consider yourself redeemed.
